Unitronic is pleased to announce the official worldwide release of its Performance Software for the MK7 Golf R and 8V S3® .

Unitronic has precisely re-calibrated the SIMOS 12/18 engine control unit (ECU) to deliver maximum performance while ensuring complete OEM-like reliability and drivability from V.A.G.’s latest generation of the turbocharged four cylinder high-output 2.0-liter TSI® engine found in the MQB chassis. Unitronic’s Performance Software is programmable directly through the OBD-2 port and within minutes you’ll be enjoying a total night-and-day driving experience.


Unitronic’s Stage 1 and Stage 1+ Performance Software are both designed for otherwise complete stock vehicles, requiring no supporting hardware modifications and provides a great entry-level upgrade. Stage 1 is optimized for 91 OCT/95 RON fuel, producing 355 HP/338 lb-ft TQ.

Taking it to the next level, Unitronic sets itself apart from the competition with its Stage 2 Performance Software, requiring a 3” downpipe, which alleviates exhaust restrictions created by the stock catalytic converter allowing for optimal dissipation of exhaust backpressure and maximum flow. Unitronic’s Stage 2 Performance Software boasts an increase of 79 HP and 68 lb-ft of TQ over the stock power as recorded by Unitronic, with an output of 397 HP and 368 lb-ft of TQ.
